Slow SSH, how do I set up a proper DNS config?
We have several linux boxes (SuSE 8.1, 9.3 and 10.1) and get delays when connecting to them by SSH, whether from Windows, OS X, or from one server to another. I added the IP address of one server (A) to another server's (B) hosts file, and then didn't get any delay in connecting from A to B.
However, I've read that this is more of a hack and not a proper solution. Also, this solution isn't practical either since we have many PCs and Macs which need to connect to the servers and can't add every IP to the hosts files.
I would greatly appreciate some guidance on what to do and how.
